Lomprayah was really well organized, on time and communication was great throughout. Although it's long and rather boring the bus and boat have great AC.

Everything worked out really good. I didn't know exactly where the pick up location was at the beginning, but I could contact the agency easily and meet them where they told me. The bus from Phuket to Surat Thani was not very comfortable, but no big issues.
